Voting day is approaching and tempers -after a first stage of the electoral campaign marked by boredom- are heating up. Matteo Morra, candidate supported by six lists, and Michele Izzo, supported by four lists, they have faced each other several times in the last few days. Morra, a member of the Democratic Party, in the past an advisor to Perrotta’s board, has pushed hard on the key “administrative competence and experience.” The vice president of Sócrates, for his part, points his finger precisely at the old administrative management, responsible for the collapse that has affected the municipality and the city.
The last days of the electoral campaign also reserve surprises in terms of cross-cutting and unexpected support. In the house of the Brothers of Italy the biggest controversies: Meloni’s party openly attacks Teresa Giaccio, local leader of the Fdi and the greatest exponent of the center-right formation, for the support that would have guaranteed the candidate dem Matteo Morra on the ballot, and against the other new director-elect of the Fdi, Carmine Carandente. Although for now Giaccio does not respond, Carandente is clear: “Our voters have full confidence in us – underlines Giaccio’s loyalist – and they will vote for the person indicated by us. They will not look at the political color”. Shortly after, here is the red-hot note signed by the local Fdi club. «The councilors Giaccio and Carandente do not represent us – we read – the Brothers of Italy cannot support in any way a candidate of the Democratic Party. We are considering drastic measures.” Even Mario Sansone, who has always been very close to provincial coordinator Michele Schiano di Visconti, had previously thundered: “Giaccio should be expelled from the party.” Giaccio, elected councilor with 842 preferences (a record for the area), he had also ended up in the crosshairs of other sectors of the center-right who immediately embraced Izzo’s candidacy, for having pasted Morra’s manifesto on the wall of his house.
A climate that inflames, therefore. Regional councilors Giovanni Porcelli, the former mayor of Mugnano, and Pasquale Di Fenza have long sided with Morra. Both supported the Democratic candidate not only with certificates of esteem, but also by helping to form two lists, Demos and Centro Democrático.
Izzo, for his part, received the support of two great names from Forza Italia, Fulvio Martusciello and Annarita Patriarca: «Professor Michele Izzo is the ideal profile for the position of mayor of Marano – they write in a note – a person of great abilities and skill. His election represents an opportunity for redemption.” The same candidate then relaunched, attacking his adversary: ”The overbuilding professionals are all with Morra. The objective is clear: to win the new municipal urban plan. Morra has expressed himself on several occasions about the new Puc: “We must prevent Marano from becoming more and more a suburb of Naples. The new Puc is an opportunity above all for the suburbs, which will have to be provided with services and infrastructures never seen before.” Stefania Fanelli, the candidate of the most radical left, who finished third after the first round, for her part announces that she has not formalized any agreement with Morra. left the perimeter of Morra’s coalition. Ours will be a strong and constructive opposition.”
